June 03 Order Comments:
Favorable currency exchange rates positively affected June orders approximately 5 percent. Underlying trends (excluding currency, acquisitions, and divestitures) are down slightly as North America continues to be weak. The direction of the trend was favorable as underlying orders turned slightly positive in the month of June.
Process orders reflect strength in the systems business worldwide, offset by softness in North America.
Industrial Automation orders reflect steady international demand in most industrial goods markets offset by weakness in North America.
Electronics and Telecommunications orders continue to be impacted by broad weakness in the telecommunications markets.
HVAC orders reflect increases in Europe and Asia.
Appliance and Tools orders reflect softness in the commercial storage and motors businesses and mixed results in the consumer related businesses.
